New Perspectives Theatre Company
458 West 37 Street (at 10th Avenue)
Join us for a brief history of the Suffrage Movement, highlighting how women in the theatre became leading ladies in the crusade for women's rights and winning the ballot.
Conceived by Heritage Program Director Mari Lyn Henry
and developed with Heritage Members
Director/Dramaturg Melody Brooks
with: Cynthia Bastidas, Mari Lyn Henry, Laura E. Johnston, Sandhi Santini
SFTS PART 2 steps outside the mainstream to offer a more in-depth look at women from different backgrounds, especially Women of Color and Working Women who played an important role in the Movement. Presented with a comprehensive slide show and music from the period, Suffragists From the Stage also integrates "In Her Own Words" selections—excerpts from memoirs, autobiographies, speeches and plays written by these women—which brings the story alive with their powerful voices!
Join us after the presentation for Refreshments and a Chat!
Doors open 6:00pm, Presentation starts 6:30pm
Free to LPTW Members; $10 non-members
